Memories: After School Special Fashion Show

So… I’m in my Google Reader glancing around and I see this picture that instantly reminds me of After School Special, the fashion show I put on at school.

For the show, I went to GAP and got clothes from there to put on the models. One of the models, my friend, Jonathan Kittrell, did not show up for the fitting, but I had his sizes so I put something together for him anyway. CHRIS AUSTAD here, photographed by ARNALDO ANAYA-LUCCA for GERMAN GQ is wearing a hoodie very similar to one I layered for Jonathan.

I put the hoodie on Jonny because of the fact that I was absolutely in love with it! I loved the material and the fact that it was a hoodie!!! As a matter of fact there were a couple of hoodies on the guys in the show. No, none of them were open like this though, because well, it was a high school show, and only about 3 of them would have even been able to pull the look off. Anyway, Jonny, and all the other models did exceptionally well, and I guess that you can say that was my first experience in the fashion industry. I worked along side stores in my area to put on an event that in my opnion went relatively well, all things considered.


Sucker for Jackets

I am, I am, I know but you have to admit that this collection is FIYA!!! Mens’ Rag brought us the Xampagne A/W 09 “BOYS” Collection and I was oh so pleasantly surprised. This particular jacket I love probably because of the way it’s situated right now. I love the fact that the bottom is pulled up and away, giving the jacket volume, and a different shape. Furthermore I’ve always love double breasted trench coats, and innovative collars. I think that’s a hood back there, oh and the sleeves, are just an added plus!Okay Okay, get off my jock, I know it’s a hoodie, but it’s an amazing hoodie is it not? I’m all for layering and I do love plaid so maybe that’s why I fell in love with this picture. The buttons pop out, and the tailoring of the jacket, to my untrained eye looks impeccable. I love this!This jacket makes me positively salivate. Always an advocate for Dapper style, I love the curved button line. The hanki is an added touch I adore, so are the tie and hat. If only I could own that jacket… that’s probably why I like the look hahaha.Now, it’s another double breast, with large lapels. The fabric of the jacket excites me as much as the jacket itself. The popper of course is the jeans, and I think the model’s pose really set it off for me…

Red, is one of the colors I’m calling for Fall, but we’ll get back to that later…

Well that’s all that I’m going to say about the collection but of course you can go check it out in the original post I saw, on Mens’ Rag. Or you can check out the Xampagne page.
